34th Annual GMAA Archie Post Five Miler

September 14, 2002
Burlington, VT

Weather: mostly sunny, light south wind, temp in the low sixties
Race Directors: Steve and Cathy Eustis
Summary: Ideal weather was enjoyed by all 109 finishers in this year's race. Binney Mitchell won his fourth Archie Post in 26:34 by staying six seconds ahead of another four time winner, Jim Miller. Jim set the 40-49 age group record with his performance. He also happens to hold the race record of 24:22 from 1981 (he hasn't slowed much in 21 years!). Sam Davis rounded out the top three in 26:55. Steve Titcomb set the 50-59 age group record in a time of 31:43. On the women's side, Stephanie Carr led the field in 32:37 and set the 20-29 age group record. Second and third were Oonagh McHugh Dillon (34:10) and Courtney Gates (34:58). Patty Foltz set the 50-59 age group record in a time of 35:15. I would also like to acknowledge our youngest runners, Abby Mitchell and John Donnelly, who are both 12 years old and ran well.

The Post family came to watch and participate in this year's race. Jeff and Kim Stevens (grandchildren) ran the race (Kim placed third in the women's 40-49). Archie's wife Persis (who looks great at 94 years old!) and two daughters Dorothy (Post) Stevens and Jean (Post) Lamphear cheered on the runners. The family thanked the GMAA and all the runners present for keeping the spirit of Archie alive and well. Thanks to the family for coming and giving all of us the personal side of Archie Post!
